Can set_post_thumbnail be used to remove a thumbnail?


I have a way to set a thumbnail for a post if a checkbox is selected or not. The problem I’m having is if the checkbox is selected and then unselected, how do you delete the featured image that was set? I.E. remove the featured image. I tried to do set_post_thumbnail($ post->ID, ''); with the ” blank to remove the image but that didn’t work.

My code in my functions.php:

function post_extra_save( $  post_id, $  post){ if ( has_blocks( $  post->post_content ) ) { // get blocks      $  blocks = parse_blocks( $  post->post_content );     foreach ( $  blocks as $  block ) {         if ( $  block['blockName'] === 'acf/opby-cover-image' ) { // name of block             $  media_url_thumb = $  block['attrs']['data']['image_post']; // Image ID from the block             $  check_if_featured = $  block['attrs']['data']['set_featured_image'][0]; // check if checkbox is selected, will say 'sfi' is enabled             if ($  check_if_featured == 'sfi') { // if checkbox is selected                 set_post_thumbnail($  post->ID, $  media_url_thumb);             } else { // if checkbox is not selected                 set_post_thumbnail($  post->ID, '');             }         }     } }; } add_action( 'save_post', 'post_extra_save', 10, 2 );
